Default Eagle CDC v6.0 charger

Hi, does anyone of you guys use this charger?

http://rc-mushroom.com/product_info....roducts_id=732

If you do would u explain to me what the function "Adjustable Volt Threshold" is for? The charger itself is not as difficult to use as i i first thought it would be but this volt threshold thing has got me rather stumped.

Thanks.

I think what you are refering to is Delta Peak value, from what i understand your battery's will increase in voltage as you charge and then decrease as they peak out , the settings in the charger are in 0.3 milivolt per cell the higher the value the more you will cook your packs !! I generally run at 0.3 for all my NIMH packs .
I have run up to 0.5 on some older packs that were false peaking.
I am mainly charging reciever packs so there is bound to be better settings for race packs

Cheers

Again thanks for the replies. I ve just gone and lowered the volt threshhold figure to 3mv to be safe, now one last thing is "discharge rate" i know what to charge my batteries on but clueless about discharge voltages, any help on discharging 1. 8Cell 1650mah TX pack and 2. 6Cell 1500mah 7.2v pack?

Thanks.

i wouldnt discharge any higher than 1 amp. i dont think TX batteries were made for high amp drain purposes. same goes with the RX pack. the cdc was more designed for electric racers. very good charger as well.

Default Charging & discharging Nihm Batteries

Hi, can anyone help me on the charging rate for AA. I've tried to charge the batteries at 3m and I think I fried one of the battery.

Pls help or can give me a website where it list the rate.

Tks.
